    Oregon has ambitious climate goals that call for the state to dramatically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and the state legislature and executive branch agencies have adopted a variety of climate and energy-related policies that aim to reduce Oregon’s climate impacts and support the transition toward renewable energy. Despite these efforts, however, Oregon is not currently on track to meet its long-term climate goals. GEI’s Taking Charge analysis explains why a comprehensive climate and energy governance framework is necessary to achieve meaningful progress in decarbonizing state and local economies, and presents a series of governance options that would support Oregon’s efforts to reduce emissions and transition to a clean energy system.

    Legislative and economic forces — particularly in the western states — are providing impetus toward the goal of 100% renewable energy. This opportunity was the focus of elected officials, business leaders, regulators, and policy advocates at the Lewis & Clark Law School Green Energy Institute conference, “Re-Energizing the West,” on October 7.

    On Saturday, October 7, 2017, GEI and Lewis & Clark Law School hosted Re-Energizing the West: The Western Clean Energy Future conference. During this excited event,  prominent state and federal policymakers—including U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley and Congressmen Earl Blumenauer and Jerry McNerney—government and industry leaders, and energy policy experts discussed the West’s clean energy future from a political, business, and policy perspective. 

    Western states are poised to play a global leadership role in clean energy development, but shifting national politics and the absence of strategic planning in the West could delay the western energy transition. Join us on October 7 as we identify and explore next steps to advance an inclusive clean energy transition throughout the western states.

    On January 28, the Green Energy Institute published a report, “Solar Building Standards: How American Cities Can Lay Foundations for a New Generation of Solar Development,” by staff attorney Nick Lawton. The report explains how solar building standards, which are local ordinances requiring solar power as a standard feature on new or renovated buildings, could offer significant benefits to many energy market stakeholders. Instead of relying on subsidies to entice investment from relatively affluent property owners, solar building standards would result in widespread solar development that keeps pace with construction and growing energy demand. At the same time, these new policies could lower costs of solar power, facilitate its integration into the energy grid, save property owners money, promote resilience to power outages, and allow utilities to develop business models that benefit from distributed solar arrays. The report describes the nation’s first two solar building standards, which were enacted in two California cities in 2013, and then offers design options that local governments should consider when adopting these policies. The report also explores possible arguments against solar building standards, which have dwindling merit as the economics of solar power continue to improve. The report concludes that as solar power’s costs of continue to decline and its benefits become increasingly clear, more local governments should give solar building standards strong consideration.
